Here’s a little sneak peek of something I’ve been working away on that I am so excited about. “The Love Book” is a book I wrote myself, that will be fully illustrated with fabric pieces. (!!!) It’s being published by Owlkids Books, and will be released in the Fall of 2017. I have never been prouder of a project. The message is straight from my heart and the artwork is so special to me. I hope the world will love it as much as I am loving working on it!
I just had to share this video for Bobs and Lolo’s song Run Salmon Run. This is so fun for me, to see my little drawings come to life! It’s a lovely song, and Turtle Box Productions did such a great job.
We weren’t expecting to get a new doggie so fast…. but the universe sent us this little one. If there is anything I’ve learned in all my years… it’s when the stars align and things seem right, they usually are. So we took the leap and welcomed this little corgi puppy into our lives. He has been nothing short (hee hee) of magical. He is making us all feel so much better. We all still miss Gerty so much, but the happiness is now back in our house. (His name is Sprout. Inspired by the amazing series “Korgi” by Christian Slade.)
Last Sunday we lost our little Gerty. Anyone who met her knew what a sweet dog she was. She was pure love. Alway happy, always ready for fun. On our walks so many people would smile at her as they walked by. More than once, people have yelled from passing cars what a cute dog she was. She didn’t have a bad bone in her body. She was my constant companion, and I couldn’t have dreamed of a better one. She brought a smile to my face every single day. Just looking at her instantly made my heart happy. She slept with Ila every night, she was her best friend. Our house is so painfully quiet, all I see is the hole she has left. We all loved her with all our hearts and miss her so badly. Gerty, you were the best girl.
I’ve been working a lot with a most reluctant Ila on learning how to read. I wanted to try something a little different to make it fun for her. We worked on this together (she is most proud of the I), and I loved the result so much I decided to get some printed. They are printed on heavy card stock, 11″X17″ and signed. I will be selling them for $35. They are up for sale in my Etsy shop. If you are in Charlottetown, please contact me directly. (The amazing banner is by Kim Roach Design)
I have some spot illustrations scattered throughout the current Discover Charlottetown Activity Guide. You can find it all around town or you can request one from the Discover Charlottetown website.
